for immediate community impact

We use the 10 principle of Burning Man to be our guiding values, while we work to support the greater-Seattle community through civic projects. Over the years we have had numerous projects, some led by BWB Seattle board members, some brought to us by you. BWB Seattle prides itself on accomplishing a lot with very little money by leveraging the power of people against innovative problem solving and all the while having a great time.

We are a Washington State Not-For-Profit and a 501c3. We are incorporated as “Burners For Direct Action”, and have a DBA as Burners Without Borders Seattle. BWB Seattle  is funded by fundraisers in the local PNW community, direct event campaigns, and Paypal donations.

We’re excited about all we accomplished in 2019!

  • 15 events with over 400 volunteer hours and $2000 donated
  • First year as 501c3

To mobilize the local Burning Man community, infusing energy and purpose into the greater Seattle area to support those in need.
